Where to find summer jobs in Edinburgh

Are you looking for summer jobs in Edinburgh? Whether you're a student looking for an unskilled job or someone who wants to take on extra professional work over the summer months, there are a wide range of vacancies for those who know where to look. Here are some tips to help you locate vacancies.

  • As a general rule, professional jobs or casual jobs - where there are a number of vacancies - are advertised through paid placements. This can be through the local Edinburgh media (local newspapers, radio stations etc.) or through online job search sites like Monster, Total Jobs or Job is Job. You can filter your results so that you only see the latest vacancies for temporary work in Edinburgh. You can also group the vacancies by category.
  • By contrast, casual or part time jobs are not usually advertised in this way. Many employers view it as a waste of money to spend their resources advertising for low paid or short term positions. Instead, they may choose to advertise "in store" or on free websites like Edinburgh Gumtree. Gumtree is a great resource for casual job seekers in Edinburgh and, as a bonus, there won't be the same level of competition as there is for jobs advertised on larger job sites or newspapers.
  • If you're a student, the careers department of your school or university should be able to point you in the direction of companies looking for casual summer staff, or even short term professional placements with major companies in Edinburgh. It's a good idea to apply for these well in advance.
